Description for "Finding Value"

Srboohie Abajian’s compelling figurative images capture people “finding value.”  Her series explores American society’s compulsion for overconsumption and addiction—to drugs, food, shopping, etc.—and the impact on urban immigrant communities.  Among her large-scale assemblages of paintings and monotypes, Srboohie interleaves uplifting depictions of individuals who shun consumerism in favor of social interaction and cultural awakening—better ways for people to realize their inner worth.  “Finding Value” builds on Srboohie’s successful entré into public art—her “Getting It” series.
